Elliott oversees corporate operations including food safety and quality assurance, strategic sourcing, logistics and customer services and continuous improvement.

The company is looking to Elliot to strengthen its supply chain initiatives by leveraging cost optimization, inventory management, supplier relationships, sustainability and streamlined processes.

Monogram Foods manufactures food products that include a full range of meat snacks, appetizers, sandwiches, raw bacon, corn dogs, bakery, and other convenience products.

“He brings a wealth of experience and expertise in supply chain management,” co-founder and CEO Karl Schledwitz said in the release. “With Larry’s proven track record of success in optimizing supply chain operations, driving efficiency, and fostering innovation, he will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our company.”

Before joining Monogram Foods, Elliott focused on plant operations at the Kellogg Co. for more than 20 years, according to the release. As VP of supply chain network transformation he assisted Kellogg in splitting the company into Kellanova and WK Kellogg Co.

With Kellogg, Elliott also served as VP of ready-to-eat cereal supply chain for North America and was plant manager for Kellogg’s Battle Creek, Michigan, facility. The Michigan plant is considered Kellogg’s largest plant and has produced approximately $1 billion in cereal volume annually, according to the release.

Elliott joins Monogram Foods months after the food manufacturer faced issues with its labor and supply chain.

The Department of Labor last fall found Monogram Foods employed children between the ages of 15 and 17 at its Monogram Meat Snacks meatpacking and processing facility in Chandler, Minnesota. The company was fined over $140,000 in civil penalties for its violation.
